Book Description: 


From National Book Award nominee Edwidge Danticat comes a timely, brilliantly crafted story of hope and imagination—a powerful tribute to Haiti and children around the world!

Hope comes alive in this heartfelt and deeply resonating story.
While Junior is trapped for 8 days beneath his collapsed house after an earthquake, he uses his imagination for comfort. Drawing on beautiful, everyday-life memories, Junior paints a sparkling picture of Haiti for each of those days—flying kites with his best friend or racing his sister around St. Marc’s Square—helping him through the tragedy until he is finally rescued.
Love and hope dance across each page—granting us a way to talk about resilience as a family, a classroom, or a friend.
